Habitat for Humanity
Pinellas Habitat for Humanity
Pinellas Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. It works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent affordable housing. The houses are then sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual, church, and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor – “sweat equity”- into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build still more houses.
Our Church’s Mission Involvement
Our church supplies volunteers several times each year to help with building projects.
